    This poem is far too deep...and there's something else behind it...but u wont get it so u better not waste ur time in finding the reason out....just read the poem n comment :)

    Far beyond any mere eye
    Was a single candle about to die
    Something was unsaid; I felt it in the air
    But all I did was - stare

    Burning in shades of yellow and blue
    Trying to tell me what’s wrong and what’s true
    Darker and darker the night grew
    So I went closer for the serenest view

    I sat there admiring its exquisiteness
    But it seemed to fade in darkness
    My contemplations was disturbed by a tear
    And I found myself wrapped in sheets of fear

    “Wait, oh wait”, I screamed in horror
    The room was imbued by strange air of terror
    One pearly tear rolled down my cheek
    And I felt incapacitated and weak

    I tried to run but my fear choked me down
    I tried to run but in worry I was drowned
    So I shut my eyes and killed it at the right time
    It was a murder but certainly not a crime

    Oh poor candle, I did this for your sake
    Oh poor candle, I had not committed a mistake
    Oh poor candle, your presence will always keep me strong
    But you can’t say that all I did was wrong!!!

    It may have some meaning for you, but what makes this poem so beautiful is that everyone in this forum can associate the lines with something or the other that has happened/happening in their lives.

    You have grown of quite some stature Sukriti, well done!!!
